In this module, students build on their understanding of probability developed in previous grades. In Topic A the multiplication rule for independent events introduced in Algebra II is generalized to a rule that can be used to calculate probability where two events are not independent. Students are also introduced to three techniques for counting outcomes. Topic B presents information related to random variables and discrete probability distributions. Topic C is a capstone topic for this module, where students use what they have learned about probability and expected value to analyze strategies and make decisions in a variety of contexts.
